SOD SYNOPSIS
COVER DATE: MARCH 1978


  • David & Trish are settling into a happy marriage. Meanwhile, Danny & Toni and Mike & Margo are becoming couples. However, Mike & Margo's budding relationship may be threatened by Patty's crush on him. Even so, Patty continues to be involved with the shady Ron. Elsewhere, Trish is so comfortable in her marriage that she invites a returned Valerie to spend time with her and David. As a result, David & Valerie begin to feel renewed feelings and they come to realize that David & Trish's marriage was a mistake.
  • Don & Marlena's renewed happiness comes into conflict with Don's pressure to run for State Senator.
  • Julie courts danger when she allows Larry to "help" her with the running of Doug's Place not knowing that Larry is working behind the scenes to derail the club's liquor license. Meanwhile, Doug's constant out-of-town singing engagements cause him to be away from Salem for lengthy periods. During one of Doug's trips, Larry conspires to frame him for cocaine possession which makes the front page of the newspaper (thanks to Larry). As a result, Doug may miss the hearing for the liquor license.
  • Mary confides in Chris about her trouble with Neil without expressly naming Neil. Unfortunately, Neil spills the beans to Chris about their past, causing conflict between him and Mary, especially when he catches Neil & Mary together (not knowing that Neil had almost forced himself on her). Later, Chris & Mary reconcile and spend the night together.
  • Linda makes headway in her pursuit of a wedding ring from Bob despite Mary's vocal belief that Linda is only after Bob's money.
  • Jeri is falling for Larry and allows him to woo & bed her.
  • Bill & Kate share a kiss. Laura becomes concerned by the amount of time Bill & Kate are spending together.
  • Fred presses forward with his lawsuit against the hospital. He has Jean so snowed & devoted that she defends him to everyone, including Maggie.
